PS - a recent Internet Draft discussed the issue of TCP connection
control, and aggregation across bottleneck links (although not the
primary issue of the draft):
	draft-touch-tcp-interdep-00.txt

The general conclusion we reached was that there is a good argument
for controlling some of the parameters of multiple TCP connections
to account for aggregate behavior, such as the graceful behavior
over bottlenecks you describe.

This is the case not only for multiple TCPs from a single host, but 
also for multiple TCPs from a set of hosts with a similar path.

This is a problem that should be addressed anyway; once addressed,
the need for persistent HTTP weakens even further.
